BCN Free Art 01: The Port and Barceloneta

by Kevin Booth

ISBN: 9780993229800

The idea for these guides sprang from hard times. Whether in boom or recession, art remains fundamental. But while free art is a great idea, not all great art is free. So this guide takes you places where there is no admission fee.

BCN Free Art 01: The Port and Barceloneta guides you around artworks on Barcelona’s waterfront and through the fishing district of Barceloneta, describing Barcelona’s history, the artists who created these sculptures and the stories that bring this city alive.

The Barcelona Free Art guides inform without being academic, helping you enjoy Barcelona’s culture as you wander or cycle around town. Further guides coming soon.

Celia's Room

Celia's Room

by Kevin Booth

ISBN: 978-84-615-4097-6

Sex, drugs and deception in the Barcelona night.

“Stunning debut: If you like Kerouac or Isherwood, you will love Celia’s Room.”

Kevin Booth paints an expressionist portrait of the Barcelona night in a year of sex, drugs and deception. Told through their own eyes, sensitive Joaquim—whose passion for painting will propel him into the artist’s life—and cynical Eduardo—addicted to a nightlife that thwarts his ambition to write—unveil a sexual, dreamlike city, personified by the enigmatic Celia. Shadowy chapters in Spanish history are revealed in this nocturnal world by an extravagant cast of gay, lesbian and heterogeneous characters.

Despite their violently contrasting natures, Joaquim and Eduardo both fall under Celia’s aura. The games they are learning to play will draw all three into conflict—against the backdrop of a city that is also rehearsing a new identity—leading them inexorably towards the truth of Celia’s Room.

“Nothing is quite as it seems. This book rejoices in ambiguity and ambivalence, successfully capturing the zeitgeist of Barcelona.”
